Subject [UPDATE] Debian 9 "stretch" systemvmtemplate for master
Date Fri, 08 Dec 2017 14:58:28 GMT
All,


Our effort to move to Debian9 systemvmtemplate seems to be soon coming to conclusion, the
following high-level goals have been achieved so far:


- Several infra improvements such as faster patching (no reboots on patching), smaller setup/patch
scripts and even smaller cloud-early-config, old file cleanups and directory/filesystem refactorings

- Tested and boots/runs on KVM, VMware, XenServer and HyperV (thanks to Paul for hyperv)

- Boots, patches, runs systemvm/VR in about 10s (tested with KVM/XenServer and NFS+SSDs) with
faster console-proxy (cloud) service launch

- Disk size reduced to 2GB from the previous 3+GB with still bigger /var/log partition

- Migration to systemd based cloud-early-config, cloud services etc (thanks Wido!)

- Strongswan provided vpn/ipsec improvements (ports based on work from Will/Syed)

- Several fixes to redundant virtual routers and scripts for VPC (ports from Remi json/gzip
PR and additional fixes/improvements to execute update_config faster)

- Packages installation improvements (thanks to Rene for review)

- Several integration test fixes -- all smoke tests passing on KVM and most on XenServer,
work on fixing VMware test failures is on-going

- Several UI/UX improvements and systemvm python codebase linting/unit tests added to Travis


Here's the pull request:

https://github.com/apache/cloudstack/pull/2211


I've temporarily hosted the templates here:

http://hydra.yadav.xyz/debian9/


Outstanding tasks/issues:

- Should we skip rVR related tests for VMware noting a reference to a jira ticket to renable
them once the feature is support for VMware?

- Fix intermittent failures for XenServer and test failures on VMware

- Misc issues and items (full checklist available on the PR)

- Review and additional test effort from community


After your due review, if we're able to show that the test results are on par with the previous
4.9.2.0/4.9.3.0 smoke test results (i.e. most are passing) on XenServer, KVM, and VMware I
would proceed with merging the PR by end of this month. Thoughts, comments?


Regards.
